Second Chances for Seabirds
International Bird Rescue inspires people to act toward balance with the natural world by rescuing waterbirds in crisis.

Finding Wisdom on Midway Atoll
In 2018 JD participated in the annual nesting albatross census on Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is located within the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, approximately 1,350 miles northwest of Honolulu.

The work conducted by the nesting albatross census team, or "Bird Counters" on Midway Atoll provides vital information found few places on earth to researchers, managers, conservation groups and the global community interested in preserving and protecting oceanic seabirds and their nesting habitats.
